Echandia wins order to supply Öresundslinjen with maritime battery system

Echandia, the leading Swedish maritime battery system supplier, has received an order from Öresundslinjen for the conversion of M/S Hamlet from fossil fuel dependency to full electrical operation. The battery system is scheduled for delivery in the first half of 2025.

Operating on the Helsingør – Helsingborg route, M/S Hamlet traverses the Öresund strait up to 8000 times annually. The battery system is tailored for a minimum operational lifespan of 10 years without requiring battery replacement. Furthermore, the battery can be recharged in both ports in as little as 11 minutes on average.

”After evaluating multiple battery suppliers for this significant conversion project, the superior lifetime and lower weight of the Echandia battery system stood out as the primary reasons why Echandia emerged as the optimal choice for us,” says Kristian Durhuus, CEO at Molslinjen. ”These factors contribute to the lowest Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) and environmental footprint when compared to other options,” Kristian Durhuus adds.

”This order once again demonstrates the recognition of Echandia’s battery systems within the maritime market, particularly in Denmark. Following the successful deployment of harbour buses in Copenhagen in 2020 and securing the contract for Molslinjen’s RoPax ferries for Als and Samsö in 2022, it is evident that Danish shipowners are increasingly valuing the advantages of Echandia when evaluating battery system options. We are honored to have been chosen by Öresundslinjen, a leader in maritime electrification, for this significant project,” says Morten Larsen, Regional Director EU at Echandia.
